Very nice work!

Could we have some more pictures with details of the engine and cowl making?

Thanks!

Hi Scott,   the cowling construction is detailed here:

Photo shows a close-up of the cylinder detail.  As mentioned, old school balsa relief cylinders wrapped in thread.  Hoping it will look reasonable under a coat of paint and a wash of oily black.

Mike
Thanks for the reply, I will give it a try. I guess if it is designed for enamels it should store when thinned. Another problem I had with the Fairchild was that I had to mix the white to get the shade.
Trouble was when opened to do some repairs it was al very solid so I had to try and remix the colour.
I also thought I might try some of the Xtra colour paints.
Regards
John

Thanks for the reference for the cowl construction.

Is there anything similar for the engine construction?

Thanks!
